Brief Answer:
Your cycle can be irregular when you first discontinue the Mirena

Detailed Answer:
Hello, and I hope I can help you today.

I reviewed your previous questions and can see that you have had some concerns and have been trying to conceive since you had your IUD removed.

First of all, it is not unusual for women to have irregular bleeding in the first month or two after discontinuing the Mirena. The Mirena usually causes women to either miss their period or have short, light cycles as a side effect. After removal of an IUD, you can become pregnant immediately as the Mirena does not affect your ovulation for the regulation of your hormonal cycle, but you may also resume having menstrual symptoms like bloating, cramps, mood changes and fatigue.

There are many reasons why women can feel bloated during their cycle. If you've been having unprotected sex, and at least 10 days of gone by since you had your IUD removed, there is a possibility that you could have become pregnant. If not, your bloating is likely due to PMS which means that you may get your regular period cycle soon.

I suggest that you perform a urine pregnancy test if at least 10 days to two weeks have gone by since the possibility of conception. If not, irregular hormonal cycling can be common in the beginning after discontinuing the Mirena and it may take a few months for your cycle to go back to the way it was before you used the IUD.

I hope I was able to adequately answer your question today, and that my advice was helpful. If I could be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes,

Dr. Brown
